Day 23 - A perfect perk for Friday!

Another fun treat … a never-before-seen script from the unproduced episode “Friday,” based on Rebecca Black’s fifteen minutes of fame.* Read & enjoy. And probably weep.

Check up on our indiegogo campaign here! Then spread it around!

*It is possible that when Yuri wrote this episode, he was going through a phase where he would sing this song all the time. I’m just saying… ALL THE TIME!**

**Shut up, Tara. You don’t know. I mean, it’s not like I was obsessed or anything.***

***I think you just proved that you were totally obsessed.****

****YOU JUST DON’T UNDERSTAND HER BRILLIANCE! IT’S BEYOND YOU!! GAH!!!

THE SHELF - DAY

BUG BOY is hanging out on the shelf by himself.

He is singing Rebecca Black’s “Friday.”

                                                     BUG BOY

(singing)

"… Seven AM wakin’ up in the morning, gotta be fresh gotta go downstairs. Gotta have my bowl gotta have cereal. Seeing everything the time is going ticking on and on everybody’s rushing—"

HERO MAN has just walked on.

                                                   HERO MAN

                                          What were you doing?

Busted.

                                                     BUG BOY

                                                     Nothing.

                                                   HERO MAN

              You’re a dirty liar. You were singing that Rebecca Black song.

                                                     BUG BOY

                                                   No I wasn’t.

                                                   HERO MAN

               Not only does that song suck, but it sucked, like, a year ago.

                                                     BUG BOY

                                                     Shut up.

                                                   HERO MAN

                                         I can’t wait to tell the—

HERO LASS enters, singing.

                                                   HERO LASS

      “…Gotta get down to the Bus Stop. Gotta catch my bus, I see my friends—”

                                                   HERO MAN

                                 You gotta be fucking kidding me.

                                                   HERO LASS

                                                        What?

                                                   HERO MAN

                                                 Et tu, Sistray?

                                                   HERO LASS

                                               I love this song!

                                                     BUG BOY

                                                       Right?

                                                   HERO MAN

                              Well you’re the only two people who-

SAMURAI SNAKE enters. Yup, singing. In his fashion.

                                               SAMURAI SNAKE

"Kickin’ in the front seat, sittin’ in the back seat. Gotta make my mind up, which seat—"

                                                   HERO MAN

              NO! Absolutely not! I refuse! You all should be killed with fire!

Hero Man leaves in a huff. There’s a beat, then:

                                               SAMURAI SNAKE

                                               One, two, three…

                               HERO LASS/BUG BOY/SAMURAI SNAKE

"It’s Friday, Friday, gotta get down on Friday, everybody’s looking forward to the weekend, weekend. Friday, Friday gettin’ down on Friday, everybody’s looking forward to the weekend…"

Hero Man, compelled by the music edges back on, singing.

                                                          ALL

              Partyin’ partyin’ YEAH! Partyin’ partyin’ YEAH! Fun, fun, fun, fun—

Sounds indicate The Kid is coming. They scramble.

                                                   HERO LASS

                                               Aaand… Action!

They freeze. Beat.

                                                   HERO MAN

                                               (low and soulful)

Yesterday was Thursday, Thursday. Today it is Friday, Friday. We, we, we so excited.   We so excited…

                                                                                                                       FADE OUT.

THE SHELF - DAY

BUG BOY, HERO MAN, HERO LASS and SAMURAI SNAKE are sitting on the shelf. The giant marker is nearby and they’ve clearly been sniffing it.

                                                           BUG BOY

But seriously. Okay. Seriously. If you could be any other action figure,   who would you be?

                                                         HERO LASS

Why?

                                                           BUG BOY

Just, you know, if you could.

                                                         HERO MAN

I would be a dump truck.

Bug Boy & Samurai Snake start giggling.

                                                         HERO LASS

That’s not a… a action figure. That’s… a truck.

                                                           BUG BOY

A truction figure.

They all think that’s funny.

                                                     SAMURAI SNAKE

I would be Moon Mistress.

                                                           BUG BOY

Wait. What? Why?

Samurai Snake mimes touching his breasts.

                                                         HERO MAN

Oh, wait, Moon Mistress, right? Right? That’s what he said, right?

                                                         HERO LASS

You got one!

Bug Boy slaps him on the back and inexplicably, Hero Man blurts out heroically:

                                                         HERO MAN

From the Edge of the Forever Dimension, we ride!

Everybody stares at him.

                                                           BUG BOY

What the fuck?

                                                         HERO MAN

I don’t know what came over me.

                                                           BUG BOY

Wait a minute…

He slaps him on the back again, and this time:

                                                         HERO MAN

Fist of justice!

Samurai Snake looks under Hero Man’s cape, sees something and also slaps him on the back.

                                                         HERO MAN

Power Kick!

Hero Man looks unnerved.

                                                         HERO MAN

Stop doing that!

                                                         HERO LASS

How did I never notice that you had one of those?

                                                         HERO MAN

One of what?

Hero Lass presses the button on his back.

                                                         HERO MAN

We’ve won the day!

                                                           BUG BOY

How many before he loops?

                                                         HERO LASS

Lemme see.

She starts pushing the button in rapid succession.

                                                         HERO MAN

Evil is a bad habit! I smell deviants! Justice prevails! I’ll smack the Evil from your mouth! I taste blood! From the Edge of the Forever Dimension, we ride!

                                                         HERO LASS

There it is.

Hero Man starts to cry. Bug Boy offers his back to Samurai Snake.

                                                           BUG BOY

Hey, do I have one?

Samurai Snake taps him. Nothing. Hero Lass offers her back.

                                                         HERO LASS

What about me?

Bug Boy presses her back. Nothing.

Samurai Snake turns around and Bug Boy presses it. He farts loudly.

                                                     SAMURAI SNAKE

HA! Gotcha!

Everyone clears to the other side of the shelf as SS sssssnickers and does a victory dance.
